It has lead a rough life  :lol:  The cylinders are here:

and they are moved forward just a bit to hide the N scale-ness.

This is the pilot that fits into those cylinders:

And I bought a few books. The Tuscarora Valley RR was one valley over from the EBT. One more valley over was the Newport & Sherman's Valley RR. There were plans to connect all 3 railroads, but it never happened. The TV had what they called "Market cars" that were a boxcar with windows where farmers would ride in and sell at each stop along the way. No plans for it, but I found a guy who did one in LGB scale:

I sized the photo so the car was 24' long, put it in CAD to trace over it and turned it into 3D




It is shiny now for decals, will weather more when done.

Looks great! How did you orient that one for printing? I've been working on a 30' D&RGW box car that is going to be my next project

Perfectly flat:



Just put a few extra supports at the corners so it doesn't rip off during printing.

So I do stupid stuff. I saw this photo of a narrow gauge 0-6-0T that was used in New Castle PA. Looked in the Gazette and found a Porter 0-6-0 with a tender. I drew a tank on it and said bingo that is it.



Well it looks like the driver are too big  :facepalm:  That is a Bachmann 4-6-0 chassis cut down.

So does anyone know the measurments of these Lifelike 0-6-0 drivers?
